Pence and President Donald Trump's eldest daughter planned to meet with law enforcement on Thursday in the city where George Floyd’s death sparked sometimes violent protests that spread around the world. Before Thursday’s planned event, Pence, Ivanka Trump and Secretary of Labor Eugene Scalia visited the site of a Minneapolis salon damaged in the unrest.
